Frederic Michalak’s first ever Super 14 try

first_imgWednesday Mar 5, 2008 Frederic Michalak’s first ever Super 14 try French international flyhalf Frederic Michalak scored his first ever Super 14 try this weekend for the Sharks. Michalak was on the end of a sweeping move that saw great hands put him away in the corner against the Bulls at Loftus. Michalak has slotted into the number 10 role nicely at the Sharks, and since making his debut two weeks ago has shown glimpses of the brilliance he’s known for. Sneaky crosskicks, one or two flamboyant passes, and one try saving tackle in particular, have meant that Michalak is fast becoming a new Sharks hero. He’s also proving to be a more than adequate replacement for Butch James, who is now plying his trade with Bath in the UK. Freddie has been known to on occasion blow hot and cold, so the rest of the season will be a true test of the mans worth. If he continues the way he has been, slowly improving, I have no doubt he’ll make the position his own in a team that boasts many players who can cover the flyhalf slot. Something a lot of you may not realise is that there aren’t many Northern Hemisphere players in the Super 14, it’s quite rare in fact. So for the French fans out there, your boy’s doing well. We’ll continue to cover his progress throughout the season to see if he can live up to the hype that’s surrounded him since arriving in Durban.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesThe ContextMinambur is a Muslim dominated village in the Southern part of India. The village was formed during the time of Raja Tej Singh of the Gingee Fort and the residents of the village comprised of both the chief officers and the workers of the King. The houses in the village are now more than 100 years old. One family from the village decided that it was time for them to upgrade their living conditions but at the same time not change their lifestyle which was influenced by many cultural and sociological factors. A decision of such nature was a huge step for the residents of this village and they hoped that their move would encourage other members to also come forward and better their living standards. The project had to be carefully evaluated due to economic constraints. The idea was to provide a design that would help them break free from the societal restrictions while at the same time retain the cultural values of the village.Save this picture!© Sneha VivekSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sneha VivekTypical Architecture design of a Minambur HouseThe spatial planning of the house was a result of many cultural and sociological factors. Most of the houses were constructed in the early 1900s. None of the houses had any windows on the exterior walls which resulted in the ventilation being dependant on a courtyard (aangan) that took up the major part of the house. The reason for this was to avoid people to have views into the house. The house was divided into multiple layers. Only known people were allowed to enter the house while the other visitors were entertained at a small Thinai (seating) space near the entrance of the house. The courtyard became the second layer and was used during the summer evenings and nights for relaxation. A corridor running around the courtyard separated it from the more intimate living spaces which were restricted to family members and the women of the house. The women were not allowed to use the front entrance of the house but a back exit was provided which would let them leave the house. Ornamentation was not a key feature of these houses and they were more functional in nature. Locally available stone was used as structural columns while the roof and the windows were made of good quality teakwood that is still in good condition.Save this picture!© Sneha VivekDesign ConceptThe users were clear that they wished to enhance their living conditions but it would be difficult for them to undergo a drastic shift in the lifestyle. Though the village had evolved over the years there were many societal restrictions that were still prevalent. Hence, the spatial planning was kept closest to their existing one but with increased functionality. Owing to the hot and dry climatic conditions, an additional courtyard was provided which would enhance cross ventilation through the house. As a result of Stack effect, the warmer air accumulated would rise up and exit through the smaller courtyard. The living spaces overlooked the courtyard while the corridor was replaced by a staircase with a jaali screen surrounding it that restricted views into the house from the outside. The ventilated screen provided privacy from the road while at the same time facilitated airflow within the house. The windows on the exterior wall were planned in a way that there would be no visibility from the road into the house. The second level with a terrace was added.Save this picture!© Sneha VivekSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Sneha VivekThe house receives natural air and light from all four sides during the major part of the day which results in less usage of electricity. Also, the open space planning resulted in the house looking larger though the plot was of a considerably small size. Similar to their typical house design, the proposed plan was also in layers to give privacy to the inner living spaces from the road. The ventilated jaali screen formed one half of the external facade that obstructed direct views into the house. A secondary screen which was similar in nature was placed within between the semi-public and private spaces. The windows on the facade were worked out in a way that there were no views created from outside the road to the interiors. This gave the womenfolk of the housing freedom from the attire that had to be maintained in front of strangers. The courtyard which is an essential in Minamburi homes, was retained with a “ Guava” tree planted in the center. The tree shades the house while at the same time enhances the internal living spaces. An alternate entrance to the house is given through the courtyard for domestic helpers and women.Save this picture!© Sneha Vivek8’’x 8’’ Terracotta JaaliA handmade block of terracotta is very common in the Southern parts of Tamil Nadu. Being a nontoxic and natural material, it was ideal for the ventilated facade screen. Each block was broken down into openings of various sizes to cut the harsh glare from the sun while still creating patterned light inside. The screen facilitated air flow into the house and due to its various opening sizes, also acted as a dust trap. It helped in reducing the overall indoor temperature in the natural ventilated space thus reducing the need for artificial air conditioning. The Village home is an embodiment of various beliefs such as sustainability, culture and the use of local materials and craftsmanship that helped create a product that could be accepted by the town. Save this picture!© Sneha VivekProject gallerySee allShow lessNest / Beza ProjektSelected ProjectsCasa Forma / Renesa Architecture Design Interiors StudioSelected Projects Share Photographs Save this picture!© Sneha Vivek+ 35Curated by María Francisca González Share Year:  Photographs:  Sneha Vivek Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2018 Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” “COPY” Carpenter: ArchDaily John and Raja Contractor: India Manufacturers: Saint-Gobain, Havells Nicola, L&T ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904731/the-village-home-s-plus-studio Clipboard Lead Architects: CopyAbout this offices+a.D StudioOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMeenamburIndiaPublished on November 04, 2018Cite: “The Village Home / s+a.D Studio” 04 Nov 2018.

Casa Zapiola is a project located in Buenos Aires that begins with the request to build a new floor above an existing house and the consequent reorganization of the rooms in the original building. The ground floor is freed from the existing walls in order to create a single open space where the kitchen, the dining, and the living room area, facing the inner patio. The upper floor locates the bedrooms and, above them, a large rooftop is designed.Save this picture!© Fernando SchapochnikSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando SchapochnikThe challenge in this project was how to assemble the original building and the new expansion. The premise was not to replicate the existing construction but to find a new language that brings both parts to balance. In this search, the original bricks from the facade and the patio were restored and new materials were added such as ceramic tiles, granite tiles, and a perforated metal facade that extends over all the floors of the house. This mesh, besides allowing the natural ventilation of the bedrooms, brings privacy, and provides an atypical view from the rooms to the city.Save this picture!© Fernando SchapochnikSave this picture!© Fernando SchapochnikSave this picture!© Fernando SchapochnikThis mesh, besides allowing the natural ventilation of the bedrooms, brings privacy, and provides an atypical view from the rooms to the city.Save this picture!© Fernando SchapochnikSave this picture!© Fernando SchapochnikProject gallerySee allShow lessAustralia is Building the World’s First Coral Conservation FacilityArchitecture NewsThe Human Scale: India At Eye LevelArticles Share Sofía Calvaresi, Agustina Servide ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/950889/zapiola-house-estudio-florida Clipboard Zapiola House / Estudio Florida “COPY” Lead Architect: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/950889/zapiola-house-estudio-florida Clipboard Area:  170 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Acuarela, Itati Marmolería, Nomen Year:  CopyHouses, Extension•Núñez, Argentina Argentina “COPY” CopyAbout this officeEstudio FloridaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionNúñezOn FacebookArgentinaPublished on November 11, 2020Cite: “Zapiola House / Estudio Florida” [Casa Zapiola / Estudio Florida] 11 Nov 2020.

New spate of repressive laws in Russia

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the latest attack on press freedom in Russia, where the Duma (the parliament) last week passed amendments under which failure to remove prohibited content will be punishable by imprisonment. More draconian legislation is being considered. Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption to go further “These latest amendments will make Russia’s draconian defamation laws even tougher,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The totally disproportionate penalties will inevitably reinforce the already oppressive climate of intimidation and further restrict debate on matters of public interest. Organisation “Offending the feelings of believers,” “propaganda in favour of non-traditional sexual relations” and “separatist propaganda” have all been criminalized. Media outlets can be branded as “foreign agents.” The grounds under which websites can be blocked without a court order keep on being extended. Technical intermediaries have increasingly been brought under control. News RSF_en RSF_EECA Читать на русском / Read in RussianLong dubbed the “mad printer” because of the furious pace at which it produces repressive laws, the Duma has again been living up to its nickname since the end of the summer break. The telecommunications ministry has meanwhile proposed that reference to a judge should not be needed in order to block any content deemed to “support or justify committing an extremist act or terrorist act or both.” This wording is even vaguer than the one already widely used to jail people for online posts of political or social content. “As a result of these increasingly repressive laws, Moscow keeps straying ever further from its international obligations and the principles proclaimed in the Russian constitution. It is high time to halt this disturbing trend.” Related documents cp_russia_24-09-2018_rus.pdfPDF – 63.36 KB May 21, 2021 Find out more September 24, 2018 New spate of repressive laws in Russia RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Council of EuropeInternetFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment The legislation applicable to news and information has been getting steadily tougher ever since defamation was recriminalized in 2012.

Hamadi Jebali has been rushed to hospital

first_img Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists Eleven organizations from civil society create the Forum on Information & Democracy, a structural response to information disorder Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” News Hamadi Jebali, editor of the weekly Al Fajr, on a hunger strike since 13 January, was rushed to Habib Bougafta hospital in Bizerte on 12 February.’If the authorities continue to show their indifference to the legitimate claims of this journalist they will bear full responsibility for what could happen to him. We repeat our demand to president Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali for the immediate and unconditional release of Hamadi Jebali’, said Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders.On 12 February Hamadi Jebali, one month into a hunger strike, was transferred from Nador prison to Habib Bougafta hospital in Bizerte (north of the country). A member of the International Association for the Support of Political Prisoners (AISPP) went to the hospital on 13 February but was unable to see the journalist. Hamadi Jebali’s wife, who visits him each Saturday, told Reporters Without Borders she was very worried and didn’t even know if she could see her husband on 15 February. ‘Since he has been imprisoned, Hamadi has staged several hunger strikes, but it’s the first time he’s making one last so long’, she added. Hamadi Jebali, editor of the weekly Al Fajr, the organ of the Islamic movement An Nahda, has been jailed since 1991 in an individual cell. A member of Reporters Without Borders who had asked to visit him at Nador prison met with a refusal on 6 February from the prisons general directorate. The journalist’s barrister, Mohamed Nouri, was also turned down. Wahida Jebali told the organisation she hadn’t been allowed to see her husband ‘directly’ (without wire netting between them) for the first time until 25 January 2003. Madame Jebali also explained that her husband had been subjected to pressure by members of the State Security police to stop his hunger strike. Following the constant presence of police in front of her house, Wahida Jebali was obliged to go and live with her youngest daughter at her sister-in-law’s in Sousse. The journalist’s wife and daughters have today been stripped of their passport. Hamadi Jebali has been on a hunger strike since 13 January to protest against his detention conditions and demand his release. In 1992, he had been sentenced by Tunis Military Court to sixteen years imprisonment for ‘belonging to an illegal organisation’. He had just finished serving a one-year prison term for publishing an article criticising the country’s military courts system. Hamadi Jebali, editor of the weekly Al Fajr, on a hunger strike since 13 January, was rushed to the hospital on 12 February. Reporters Without Borders demand once more to president Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali for the immediate and unconditional release of Hamadi Jebali.

Vintners must wait until Thursday for ruling

first_imgFOLLOWING almost two hours of legal submissions, evidence and case law references, Judge Tom O’Donnell has reserved his ruling on the application made by 100 Limerick vintners to seek the court to allow them open and trade on Good Friday to coincide with the Magners league clash of Munster and Leinster at Thomond Park. Judge O’Donnell told the court that he will deliver his judgement on Thursday next at 9.30 as there was a “substantial amount of case law to review.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up State solicitor, Michael Murray, objected to the application made by Gearoid McGann on behalf of the vintners group lead by Jerry O’Dea, Limerick Vintners chairman. The packed courtroom heard submissions made by Mr McGann and counter objections on behalf of the state as to the importance and definition of a “special event”. The state solicitor, on behalf of the gardai, said that the match was not a special event and that the application made by the vintners wasn’t warranted on such a basis. Should Judge O’Donnell grant the application, some 100 pubs in the Limerick District Court area could open and trade between the hours of 6pm and midnight and thus cash in on the projected €7 million windfall that the game could bring to the economy.

Councilman defends role in Hispanic Chamber shakeup

first_img By admin – March 20, 2018 Facebook Pinterest Twitter WhatsApp Filiberto Gonzales District 5 Councilman Filiberto Gonzales insisted Tuesday that his role in firing the leadership of the Odessa Hispanic Chamber of Commerce did not conflict with his duties as a city official who funds that organization with tax money.His comments followed a joint meeting between the Odessa City Council and the Odessa Development Corporation, the board of council appointees that oversees tens of millions of dollars intended for economic development.The ODC funds the Hispanic Chamber but recently moved to terminate the contract with the organization amid concerns after its new leaders were abruptly removed as they were about to propose reforms.“From what I understand there were some changes that was made,” Gonzales told a TV reporter after the meeting. “So at the end of the day they were wanting to see if they could know what actually happened and which direction the chamber is going to go. So they have a right to ask that, and I feel that as a council we have a right to ask that.”But despite his direct involvement in making the changes, Gonzales refused to answer those questions in a brief interview with the OA. The City Council and the ODC were not scheduled to vote on Tuesday night, but the City Council could consider ratifying the economic development board’s decision as soon as next week. Instead, the city officials discussed Interim City Attorney Gary Landers’ recommendation to end the current contract with the Hispanic Chamber for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. Terms of ending that contract would still fund the Hispanic Chamber for about two months. That means the public support would cease just as the city starts to review the organization’s budget request for the coming year. And in the meantime, the Hispanic Chamber would likely submit a new budget request to cover the next several months.“I fully believe they’ll have everything way before that 60 days,” said Tim Edgmon, an ODC board member appointed by Gonzales and past chair of the Hispanic Chamber.Edgmon described the process ahead as “harsh, but it’s the way it needs to be done.”He was one of the five ODC members who voted unanimously on March 8 to begin the process of ending the public payments to the organization amid concerns that they did not know who was controlling the public money it received. The shake-up in Hispanic Chamber leadership came just hours before the ousted CEO Price Arredondo was about to propose changes to the organization that would include ending public payments to the leader of a controversial effort to build business ties with Mexico, called the “Mexico Initiative.” Two board members also said they were pushed out.At the ODC meeting the same day, Ben Rubio, a former chair of the Hispanic Chamber, was introduced as the new Hispanic Chamber leader. Rubio was absent Tuesday and he has declined to explain the reason for the leadership change, which the the ousted officials said he helped execute. An audit of the Hispanic Chamber is underway, city officials said Tuesday. District 1 Councilman Malcolm Hamilton said the City Council should not consider renewing a Hispanic Chamber contract until an audit is finished.“I think I took a lot of heat for actually stepping up for the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce here for the last year and a half — So now it’s time for results,” Hamilton said. “Now, for whatever reason, this has happened. Alright, let’s get this straightened out and get them back on track to do whatever needs to be done.”For years, Gonzales has been a champion of the Hispanic Chamber’s “Mexico Initiative” and he is a close associate of the leader of the effort, Raymond Chavez, who collected a publicly funded salary of about $58,000 over the past six months. Since Chavez founded the Mexico Initiative in 2014, there’s been little documented progress of results such as new jobs or businesses created. And some early supporters such as Mayor David Turner, who was absent Tuesday, have in recent months criticized poor management by the Hispanic Chamber and a struggle documenting resultsEven without City Council approval, Chavez’ publicly funded position is set to expire at the end of this month — unless council members and the ODC approve restoring it.Gonzales refused to answer questions about the reasons for Arredondo’s ouster. He told fellow City Council members and ODC appointees that Rubio was absent “under the advisement of his attorney” and said that is “because he is still, from my understanding, doing an investigation of everything that happened and why they did what they did.” “They,” Gonzales said, was the board. But despite his involvement, he offered no further explanation.Arredondo said after his firing that in addition to Gonzales, the people who voted to remove him included Chavez’ wife and granddaughter, along with allies including Rubio and former ODC board member Mario Contreras.Gonzales said in an interview that inserting himself in a governing role of the Hispanic Chamber was akin to serving on boards as a representative of the City Council. The City Council makes appointments to boards of city-supported organizations like the Midland-Odessa Transportation Alliance. The Hispanic Chamber is not one of those boards.But Gonzales still blamed the apparent conflict on media accounts. And he said Landers “has not told me that I did anything wrong.”“There’s no conflict of interest. Period,” Gonzales said. “No conflict of interest.”He refused to answer further questions from the OA.
